Follow along with live grades for each of the Green Bay Packers’ 2016 NFL Draft selections.
How have the Green Bay Packers fared in the 2016 NFL Draft? Let’s look back over each pick and hand out some grades to the selections made by general manager Ted Thompson.
The Packers’ first pick was on defensive tackle Kenny Clark out of UCLA. Clark is a talented run defender who can line up anywhere along the front three of the Packers’ defense. His versatility, high motor and potential appealed to general manager Ted Thompson. There’s a lot to like about his game and what he can bring to the Green Bay defense alongside Mike Daniels.
After trading up nine picks in the second round, the Packers selected offensive tackle Jason Spriggs out of Indiana. Spriggs will help add insurance behind David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga as a rookie with the potential to start in the future. In the third round, the Packers boosted the pass rush with linebacker Kyler Fackrell out of Utah State.
Looking back at all of the Packers’ selections, has the roster got much better or are there still glaring weaknesses on the team? Let’s review each draft pick and hand the Packers some grades.
